Make sure of the input you are getting from the scooter first. A little tire noise can make a cleating issue seem a lot worse than it it.
Check the tires and wheels for bulges, dents or wobbles. If that looks all good, add some air to the tires about 10 lbs. If the symptomes change, its a tire issue.
After you are convinced its not a tire problem, find a straight paint line in a parking lot, see if the scooter will roll along and track with both tires on the paint. You'll need a helper to look for you, or some video cameras. If it wont track, somethings up in the back.
After that check the fall away on the steering head. No need for being exact, just make sure it will fall away and that there is no freeplay or binding.
Then check the wheel bearings, pull the wheels and check them close. While pulling the wheels you can check the brake calipers for dragging.
